District 20 – Republican, Michael Hendricks
As an immigration lawyer who grew up in central Mexico, Hendricks offers a fresh Republican perspective on immigration. He works to help people through the citizenship and asylum legal processes and believes a border wall is more a waste of money than a benefit.
Hendricks considers himself a “true Republican,” half Republican and half Libertarian. Pet projects are his pet peeve. And he says he has no personal conflicts that could influence his decisions as a state lawmaker. “I don’t owe anyone anything at the Roundhouse,” he told the Journal Editorial Board.
